Hi,

I have a peculiar problem. We have a dedicated point to point link between two locations A and B. The link is 1MB in size. The Internet connectivity for location B comes from the Location A using the point to point link. We have 3640 Routerin both the places. Now When we are downloading from Location A to Location B we are getting a download speed of about 150k but when we are uploading to Location A we are getting a speed of just 30k. The Location A router has two ethrnet interface. once goes to the Local Area network and the other to another Cisco Router for internet. Location B comes to the location A Router and then routes to the Same Cisco Router for internet. We tested by making it genuene only point to point and removed all the other routing statements, but the result is the same. Can some one help with a solution for this problem.

Thanks in Advance

Test the device at location A, setup a temp share to copy the same size files back and forth, if the speeds increases change the hard drive or reload the OS on orginal system.

The temp share should not be on the same system as the orginal.

You mention 2 things.

1 - Asymmetric 150/30Kbps. What kind of link are you using? If it is ADSL, remember that the "A" stands for Asymmetric. Also, what application(s) are you using for "upload" and "download"?

2 - Raw usage (150K when you areperhaps expecting 1Mbps). Even if there is only one machine on A talking to one machine on B, and all other machines on both networks are powered off, you will NEVER get even close to 1Mbps down/upload on a 1M circuit. There are several layers of overhead (depending on which "applications" you're using in any network usage) that will impact this. Add to it that you're likely sharing the link with other systems on networks A and B, maybe it's actually not broken.

Just a comment on line speed, your 1MB should be 1Mbits or 125KBytes/sec (or 189KBytes/sec if you have a T1), you should see if the routers are configure to throttle bandwidth in a specific direction.

Hope this helps.
